The Namesake Project

Tri-City Collective

The Namesake Project is a new community outreach initiative facilitated by Tri-City Collective in partnership with Tulsa Public Schools (TPS); supported by Impact Tulsa; and funded by the Tulsa Artist Fellowship. It was conceived by poet, author, and Tulsa Artist Fellow Quraysh Ali Lansana. The Namesake Project provides students the opportunity to research their school and/or community “namesake(s)” and origins as a catalyst for creating a piece of critical, place-based writing. Project finalists will be published in an anthology, offering greater visibility and validation to teens who are committed to building their writing skills. This summer, the Namesake Project plans to run a week-long pilot program at OSU-Tulsa. This program will be available to TPS students entering grades 9-12 in the 2021-22 school year. It aims to provide these students with an immersive, enriching writing experience on a local college campus—an experience that connects them with young writers from other schools, and with professional writers as well.
